George Lopez Starring in Semi-Autobiographical Comedy Series on TV Land

The 12-episode comedy will premiere in 2016, continuing the cabler's single-camera reinvention.

TV Land is set to turn the lens on George Lopez's life.

The comedian is poised to star in and executive produce Lopez, a single-camera comedy that has landed a 12-episode series pickup at the Viacom-owned cable network, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

Lopez revolves around America’s most successful Hispanic-American comedian and explores how he struggles between his two worlds and crises — often of his own making. Too rich to go back to his working-class Latino roots and too "brown" to feel comfortable in his affluent celebrity life, being George Lopez comes with many problems.

The serialized comedy, set to debut in 2016, will be written by John Altschuler and Dave Krinsky (Silicon Valley, King of the Hill), who will executive produce alongside Lopez, 3 Arts' Michael Rotenberg (It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia) and Troy Miller (Arrested Development).
